A Tale of One Flag



The first photo was an attempt to be "artsy" by taking a photo of our neighbor's flag through our office window. The second shot is our neighbor's flag flying at half-mast in memory of those persons killed in the recent terrorist attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Makes me feel sad to see it flying at half-mast. It's happening way too much :(

I'm with Bill Burke...flags are too often stuck at half mast these days.

I like to see our ol flag flapping in the breeze now and again.
Happy Father's day to you, Sir.

I like how you captured this in two different lights, Lowell!

I love it when you get "artsy" with your shots! All the flags are at half-staff here too!

Agree with Bill that we are now seeing half-mast waaaay too often.

Ps. tell your neighbour that they have a pretty front door:)
